GORGE Junior Sailing
Give your kids water and safety skills that will last a lifetime!
Instruction in basic sailing skills including rigging, knot tying, and safety. Intermediate/advanced sailors will learn racing skills. Beginner classes will be held in the confines of the Hood River Marina; Intermediate and advanced classes will have opportunities to sail on the river. Classes are taught by US Sailing certified instructors. All students must know how to swim. Swim check is intended to acclimate children to the cold, dark water and observe their comfort level in the water. Swimming in the river presents new circumstances and is not like swimming in a pool. Students are required to wear life jackets at all times while on the docks, on the beach, and sailing. Life jackets are not provided; children and adults must bring their own properly fitting life jacket. Students are required to bring life jacket (PFD), closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, towel, water bottle, and snack. Children must be of class age by June 1st. Each student must fill out a 2017 medical & liability form (will be sent to the email address on file with HRCE. Form available at gorgejuniorsailing.org). Please provide current email address upon registration; forms and class info will be emailed before first day of class.
